    My issue with this is that we would end up in a "race to the bottom" in many cases. If communities aren't held to a base standard, they will short-change the schools and kids won't get a good education. There are some very poor communities that need state and federal money.

    Or in some communities, they wouldn't be taught science or art or some other subject, based on the biases of that community.

    Local school boards have a lot of control as is; but we need feds to ensure fairness across the country, at least at a base level.

    Kids aren't getting a good education now. So your solution is to maintain the status quo?

    Are you suggesting that prosecutorial discretion is somehow criminal? Since when? Or do you only think it's criminal when someone other than the Marxist liar who is disgracing the White House uses it? He and his Attoney General are great proponents of prosecutorial discretion.

    Oh--and may all devil worshippers go straight to hell, where they belong. I hope more people do just what that lady did, and get themselves arrested. And then we will see if any prosecutor's office is willing to bring charges, and if it does, if any jury will convict.

    Guess what, they are. So much for your knowledge of the topic.

    Liberal court rulings are an insane interpretation of seperation of church and state and the 14th due process clause.
    How would you know other than repeating some talking point?

    Kids in my town are getting a good education. Many kids in many public schools are getting a good education.

    There are places where kids aren't getting a good education. That has nothing to do with the federal government. It's a combination of a lot of factors.

    Yeah, it's always 1000 shades of grey when something goes against the narrative....Right?

    From an economic standpoint, how foolish would it be waste tax funds and resources on a school in a ghostown? By the same measure why pump in tax money into an economically depressed area such as an inner city wasteland if the locals there do not properly care for and maintain the structures, or allow the funds to be mismanaged? The billions of tax monies dumped into such places has not made them better than they were 50 years ago. Forcing the residents of each school district to be fully accountable is the only was to bring about positive change.

    As far as cirriculum goes, the majority rules. If our leaders want more and more Muslims in the country, then there should be more Islamic controlled neighborhoods and cities that can rightfully teach Islamic doctrine to the children. (Isn't multiculturalism great!?) Same thing for majority Christian areas, if the majority want school prayer and intelligent design allowed in their schools---so be it. Same thing goes for Godless areas populated by atheists and pagans (San Fransciso, Greenwich Village, etc.)---they can righfully expunge all religion and teach only socialistic views.
